Default Facts are Hate Speech on Facebook

For the first time ever, I was placed in "Facebook jail" because of a post I made that some moronic snowflake apparently reported. Someone posted an article about Stephen King saying that trans women are women. My response got me banned for 24 hours. This is the reason Facebook gave:

Quote:
You can't post or comment for 24 hours.
This is because you previously posted something that didn't follow our Community Standards.

This post goes against our standards on hate speech, so no one else can see it.
This is the "hateful" comment I posted:

Quote:
Trans women are mentally ill men. That is a fact. Biology is what it is. One cannot switch genders unless one has the sex organs of both, which is an anomaly.
Gender dysphoria is classified as a mental illness, so apparently facts are hate speech on FB.

The new normal these days thanks to the deranged Left.

This is why I refuse to participate on Facebook, Twitter or any of the other social media platforms. I don't agree with their agenda and will not be a source of data that they can sell to the highest bidder.

historians get demonetized on youtube for teaching civil war right now even though they just teach not give opinions. in their case it's algorithms.
but yeah none of these platforms is a public forum. otherwise the internet and these guys would be regulated.

Here's the problem...

Facebook SAYS they are not publishers...In other words, they are EXEMPT from the law that publishers are held to...

But the second Facebook decides which posts are allowable and which ones aren't they show that they ARE publishers, and their exemption should be removed...

Social Media Platforms or Publishers? Rethinking Section 230

Quote:
Chris Hughes, co-founder of Facebook, recently wrote a widely discussed critique of the company in The New York Times. He observes that Mark Zuckerberg once claimed that “Facebook was just a ‘social utility,’ a neutral platform for people to communicate what they wished.”

Hughes laments that Zuckerberg now considers Facebook to be both a platform and a publisher—claiming in court that it is “entitled to First Amendment protection” and that it is “inevitably making decisions about values.” Hughes sees this transformation from neutral platform to self-appointed arbiter of acceptable public discourse as a threat to free expression and political debate. He argues that Facebook should be broken up, or at the very least that “the government must hold Mark accountable.”

What Hughes does not discuss, and what too often goes unremarked on in discussions of Big Tech’s power, is how a special government privilege, Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, allowed for this growth. This provision protects internet platforms like Facebook and Google from liability for statements and content its users generate.

This legal protection—not accorded to newspapers or other fora—created the internet as we know it. Protection from liability for any false or injurious content their users post has permitted the social media giants to allow the incredibly freewheeling discussions and commentary that we have come to expect from the internet. Exemplary is Facebook’s response to the recently circulated doctored video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In a statement to The Washington Post, Facebook said:“We don’t have a policy that stipulates that the information you post on Facebook must be true.” In addition, this legal protection has also helped create the lucrative tech behemoths and further their dominance in attracting advertisers. This dominance has gutted the advertising revenue streams of local, regional, and even national media outlets—outlets that do not enjoy the privileges of Section 230.

But what is particularly bizarre, ironic, and deeply destructive to public discourse is that, though Congress passed Section 230 to promote a free and open internet, Facebook, Twitter, and Google now use it to advocate for an open internet while at the same time justifying their censorship regimes.

When retards post shit like that I have to wonder how many of actually believe nonsense the say. Would Steven King go out with a man pretending to a woman as long as that man said he was a transwoman?

I have often wondered how that worked. Myself, I would never go out with a woman that was a man.

Does anyone know what the preferences are for transgenders?

Do they tend to prefer the sex that they USED to be? Meaning, do men change to a woman so they can go out with men and not be gay?

I had Facebook for 10 years and never really used it. I did connect with old friends that I never would have found, but that's about it.

I started posting on it after the virus hit, work was slow, so I had more time on my hands. I was "Warned" about 6 times for posting something the left did not want to hear. After about 2 months of arguing with people, many old friends, I got rid of it, in it's entirety. I didn't "Take a break" or leave anything that I could go back to. It's gone, and I'm all the better because of it.

Found this tidbit on the subject.

The problem is that some transgender people are not gay. Take Chaz Bono for example. Chaz came out as a lesbian in 1995 because, living as a female since birth and being attracted to other females, that made him a lesbian in society’s eyes. It took Chaz until 2008 to realize that he was truly a man. Now, living as a man who is in a relationship with a woman, Chaz is considered by society to be straight
